One of the key scientific objectives of the upcoming era of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is understanding how the Universe was reionized and what sources caused the reionization. Since direct detection is difficult at low redshifts and impossible at reionization redshifts, we must resort to the use of indirect diagnostics. I give a review of eight promising spectral diagnostics, which could indicate escape of LyC photons from the interstellar medium into the intergalactic medium.
